in northern virginia, technology and defense jobs, and using them as pawns to a demand higher taxes or a budget deal. now, these are tough times, but out of adversity, we can create a more confident, caring, and prosperous america, and that is a positive agenda i will forward to discussing today, and the ida is what is best for the virginia businesses. >> governors, thanks to both of you. this is a high-profile senate race for the nation, certainly very important for the commonwealth, and it is also occurring in the shadow of the presidential debate, so i want to ask you about 47% we heard about this week. governor romney in summer marks at a fundraiser taped earlier this year talked about how there is some 47% of the people that do not pay federal income tax. he said that he believes they are -- that they feel they are victims, that the government needs to take care of them, and that they are entitled to housing, you name it. part of that 47 percent said. what would you do about that? do you think that should change? and what do you think, generally, about too many virginians, too

reached the conclusion the defense secretary was vague. >> day after, or -- >> it took a while to really get the feedback from what exactly happened at that location. >> reporter: in addition to c.i.a. assessment before the acta, security in libya was deteriorating. in august, a defense department report on the rise of al-qaeda in libya there was another warning about islamic extremists and the potential for action. >> there was a thread of intelligence reporting that groups in the environment in western -- correction -- eastern libya were seeking to coalesce, but there wasn't anything specific. >> reporter: while the white house consistently cited the need for investigation to play out, fox news told 16 days after the attack there are still no f.b.i. agents on the ground in benghazi, because the security situation is too unstable. the chairman of the house homeland security says the statement smacks of pre-9/11 mind set. >> one thing we are supposed to learn on september 11 no, longer would we assume that these are criminal matters. but instead they're terrorists. terrorist attacks. >>
interested in foreign policy and even issues like the defense budget? and that's why issues like that and the onces we don't know about that make me wary of all these straight line projections we're make in the future based on what things look like right now. >> anyone want to address the point? >> which point? >> the point about . >> pick on any of the points. i meant the point about iran and the likely hood we would enter in to military action there regardless of who wins. [inaudible] >> question from the audience? >> yes, sir. front row. >> microphone approaching you from the left. governor romney said he wants to create 12 million jobs during his term, that's 250,000 jobs a month. in the past, the u.s. has always been an exporter. and that was what created jobs. how do you see his promise of creating 12 million jobs in four years? >> unlikely. [laughter] >> okay. that's one view. anybody want to elaborate on that? >> look, i think we are in a completely different, you know, job market. we're about -- a few weeks during the convention which is bill clinton lineback in 1990 if
an increase in the defense budget. but back then we had planes that couldn't fly for lack of spare parts or pilots. we had navy vessels that couldn't leave harbor because of lack of crew or, again, lack of spare parts. today we're well on our way to a 600-ship navy. we have 543 at present. we have -- our military, the morale is high. i think the people should understand that two-thirds of the defense budget pays for pay and salary, or pay and pension. and then you add to that food and wardrobe, and all the other things, and you only have a small portion going for weapons. but i am determined that if ever our men are called on, they should have the best that we can provide in the manner of tools and weapons. there has been reference to expensive spare parts, hammers costing $500. well, we are the ones who found those. i think we've given the american people back their spirit. i think there's an optimism in the land and a patriotism, and i think that we're in a position once again to heed the words of thomas paine, who said, "we have it in our power to begin the world over again.'' >> than
, talking to a group at the men legion post today. he told them about the potential effect of defense cuts in the looming sequestration saying it could result in the loss of 136,000 jobs here in virginia but it would profoundly affect military readiness and america's security. >> troubled and dangerous world we live in. the idea of cutting our military commit my by a trillion is unthinkable. and devastating. when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >>reporter: mitt romney said he does not know how president obama could stand by and let that all happen. >>shepard: the 39 is in virginia, as well. they us about that event. >>reporter: he was in virginia beach, another big military community with a lot of pilots accusing governor romney of giving a huge tax cut to the rich and raising taxes on the middle class. governor romney said he would not do that but would work to close a lot of the loopholes and deductions for wealthy americans. president obama took a a new tat today, wrapping himself in the flag asking voters for give
. >> thank you. megyn: breaking news on maas i have layoff -- massive layoffs on the defense industry and how the notices were supposed to go out right before the election. not now. >>> plus, with just five weeks until the votes are counted and the head of the military voter participation project says military voting looks like it will be way behind where it should be, and the numbers are staggering. he will join us live next on what and who he thinks is to blame here.

these political games for the armed services. we need to have a strong economy and national defense. but the last thing we need to be doing is having these devastating cuts to our military readiness and that's what has to happen is stop these devastating cuts, come up with the cuts that have the right priority and make sure the men and women protecting our safety and our freedoms here have the best armments, the best equipment and making sure we get those good paying jobs and technology and defense here in virginia and not use then am a pon to raise taxes. >> no one's talking about using the military or veterans as pons, i mean, i haven't heard that stated except george kind of throw in that charge at me and that's the kind of charge that you ought to be more careful about. i take second to no one in appreciating the service of our folks in active service and in our military i was governor in the middle o two wars. our virginia guards people, 1,500 of them deployed. i went to the deployments and the wakes in afghanistan and i celebrate the fact that all units are home. we have to get to a resolve
he delivered -- >> you think that obama can put romney on the defensive? >> i don't think so. >> can romney put obama on the defensive? >> he'll have to. >> both could put the other on the defensive. >> who is going to fight for that and proceed as though it doesn't exist? >> no, no, no, they will both fight for that. the whole point is now, whoever two-thirds of the country think the economy is headed in the wrong discretion. there is a huge 23%, 23 million people are out of work. people have lost 40% of the net worth and 40% of the income. >> and they are more optimistic about the president all of >>> issue two, mahmoud versus bb. >> the policies of the world's main centers of power are based on the principle of domination and the conquering of others. these centers only seek supremacy and are not in favor of peace and definitely not at the service of their nations. continued threats by the unsievelized designennists to resort to military action against our great nation is a clear example of this bit of reality. >> in his speech before the united nations general assembly, mahmoud
appears on the stage is very important. normally when a candidate gets defensive that is when they started looking bad. that happens with barack obama. it happened when he told hillary she was like have likable enough. it happened with mitt romney when he did the $10,000 bet with governor perry. it's very important that governor romney keeps making the case about the economy and keep pushing an alternative vision that the american people can see as a better path and a better way forward to improving the economic conditions. if he does that he will put the president on the defensive. if he allows the president to sort divide the audience, talk about women and myth of the war on women and talk about the middle-class and divide the country and gets on the defensive or talk about issues that are irrelevant to the economy, then that is place where governor rom can look at defensive and may not look as good to the audience. >> is it possible to be too prepared for the debate and candidate appears to be reading off a card imprinted in the back of his head because people are pounding him with info
in defense cuts over the next 10 years. the department of defense estimated that president obama's defense cuts could result in as many as 1.5 million jobs lost. what can president obama to win the veteran vote? when you are talking about numbers like that in this economy. >> it is important to point out ryan budget cuts veterans benefits by 13%. it is important for the president to emphasize what he has done for the military and veterans, whether it is aid for military families or whether it is increasing benefits for veterans or his post 9/11 g.i. bill there's a strong record he has to try on and he should tuck about that. >> heather: trey what about those numbers? >> you will not be able to convince veteran vote there's republicans are not going to stand up for them. they will be there for him, they know regardless of the budget cutting republicans are proposing which is much needed in this town in terms of the waste, fraud, abuse or unnecessary spending that they are going to be there for our military that has never been a question. >> heather: defense secretary panetta says the cuts w
military state. no surprise mitt romney would come to this crowd of veterans here to talk about defense issues. he talked a whole lot about president obama and the deal that was made with congress for sequestration cuts that would impact the defense department greatly. mitt romney said, if he were elected president, he would reverse those cuts. at a certain point during this speech, he talked about how he would actually add personnel to the united states military, not cut personnel. of course, that's going to raise the question where did that money come from? the romney campaign says all that is paid for. but you also heard mitt romney talk about the gd pfrnlts report that came out today that showed in the second quarter of this year, the nation's gdp was revised downward from 1.7% to 1.3%. mitt romney tried to link that issue to national defense. at one point saying in the his remarks here that china's economy is growing faster than the united states. russia's economy is growing faster than the united states and that a weak economy means weak national security. it's no surprise he tail
and turned it from a defensive problem for the romney campaign into the advance of the way they will frail the race in terms of the stagnation economy that they accuse president obama of overseeing and the prosperity economy they are promising. >> let's help them get jobs so they can get a paycheck so they are good taxpayers. (applause) this is the point that we have been trying to make. sometimes the point doesn't get made the right way. we don't want a stagnant economy that fosters dependency. we have added 15 million people to the food stamp roles in four years. largely there is no opportunity or economic growth. >>carl: that is the argument mitt romney hopes to make tomorrow night standing face to face with president obama. there has been mock debating today for mitt romney and stepped out if a quick snack and other than that it will be closed doors until the walk through tomorrow afternoon. >>trace: what about the 47 percent controversy. does governor romney have an answer do that? >>carl: he has been working through a series of answers on it. last night when he got to denver, he did
in the department of defense for managing the supply chain and then all of a sudden decide that you are going to apply that single solution to everything the department of defense by is. we wouldn't people to buy anything if that were the case. >> the only thing i would add is the trusten suppliers of objects but also as melissa referred to in her talk those that support those things the trust that might install or maintain them as well. >> i think we are talking about multiple definitions of a trusted supplier to the if you look at it from the business point of view, many of the supply years have to go through a set of requirements that means whatever those security brandt integrity of the overall company whether it's a background investigation the companies have to go through to supply to other companies to meeting all of the legal requirements, for example the corruption act for mean osha standards and i'm just citing the ones in the united states they have to meet the requirements of many different countries laws, and sometimes it is difficult to become a supplier to a high brand-name a a
as such and in fort hood i've done an extensive investigation, how can the defense department brand that or dealing with it as work place violence. it's just dishonest if i could take my reporters hat off. >> mike: i don't know how you could have your reports hat on and not state the obvious. what some of us are satisfying. and obvious to everyone. quickly, i want-- don't want to run out of time, but i have to ask you about new information on some of the security flaws that were apparently in the consulate in benghazi. you've uncovered some of those security flaws, tell us what those were. >> thank you, i spoke yesterday with someone who was called a regional security officers, the person in charge of the security in that country, and the state department personnel and someone who worked extensive will in the middle east. says catherine look at the pictures of the consulate in benghazi, a location classified as high risk of a terrorist attack or high risk of civil unrest, from that classification, very specific physical security standards followed by the state department. ocean, when you look at th
of defense with regard to that attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi in libya a little over two weeks ago in which four americans were killed including the u.s. ambassador to libya. barbara starr at the pentagon, just popped out of the briefing with the defense secretary and the fact that this attack was planned. >> reporter: absolutely, brooke. new information now, senior administration officials were telling me earlier in the day that they began to gather intelligence within a day or so of the attack indicating that this was potentially al qaeda related or al qaeda groups. but now, defense secretary leon panetta has gone further in this briefing, just concluded here at the pentagon, with very definitive word about his assessment of what happened. i want you to listen. >> as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack and that's when i came to that conclusion as, again, as to who was involved, what specific groups were involved, i think the investigation that is ongoing hopef
with republicans to slash defense spending if there's no budget deal by january 1st. >> and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion dollars over this decade is unthinkable and devastating. >> reporter: romney's polls in this battleground state look potentially devastating. he's trailing by 3 to 7 p ers percent. romney backers like dave milne are worried. >> he has to get a little more fire in the belly. >> reporter: more romney the businessman suggests soccer mom monica camera. >> he needs to bring up the economy. >> reporter: president obama was in virginia pushing an elitist image of romney in a tv ad to run here putting faces on the 47% of americans romney says he sees as dependent on government. >> i see hard working virginians, i see students trying to work their way through college. >> reporter: the president was with students who typically pay no income tax, like many soldiers. >> and a see a whole bunch of veterans who have served this country with bravery and distinction. >> reporter: amid the cheering veterans at the romney rally was dave klane undecided because he says
from our defense secretary panetta. western intelligence officials say the syrian government has one of the world's largest supplies of chemical and biological weapons. syrian officials have threatened to use them in the event of a foreign attack. today the defense secretary said there is evidence the regime has shuffled their stockpiles. >> there has been some intelligence with regard to some of the sites that there has been some movement in order for the syrians to better secure the chemicals. while there has been some limited moment, again, the major sites still remain in place, still remain secure. >>shepard: you may recall president obama warned the syrian government not to move their chemical weapons. listen. >> we cannot have a situation where chemical or biological weapons are falling into the hands of the wrong people. we have been very clear to the assad regime and also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we see a budge chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. >>shepard: a red line for us is if we see a bunch of chemical weapons being moved ar
is the defense between the israel defense and department of defense everything our understding is as tight as every. therst sms to ony lietwe netanyahu and obama so what? >> it just happens to be a personality conflict with the man who has to make the decision whether to do the bombing or not. you overcome the personality conflict a you deal with it. you don't go hide in a shell and be afraid to talk to him. >>ould you be meeting with morsi today? >> if i w nya- ould you be meeting with both of them? >> i'd meet with both of them. he is not doing the job of bng candidate. president p.m. has decided he regards as a bump in the road he can take the time not to be president the next six weeks and let playtself out. >> h du t't ab a bth road? >> i don't know. all of those people being killed in syria doesn't seem like a bump in the road. >> dancing or march of 2005, it's democracy. there was a lot of chaos going on in iraq 2005. we ven said when wree, deacs messy. >> how long ago was that? >> 2005. >> it turned out to be wrong, didn't it? >> former mayor of new york city, nice to see you. >>
and injuring hundreds of thousands of jobs in northern virginia, technology and defense jobs, and using them as pawns to a demand higher taxes or a budget deal. now, these are tough times, but out of adversity, we can create a more confident, caring, and prosperous america, and that is a positive agenda i will forward to discussing today, and the ida is what is best for the virginia businesses. >> governors, thanks to both of you. this is a high-profile senate race for the nation, certainly very important for the commonwealth, and it is also occurring in the shadow of the presidential debate, so i want to ask you about 47% we heard about this week. governor romney in summer marks at a fundraiser taped earlier this year talked about how there is some 47% of the people that do not pay federal income tax. he said that he believes they are -- that they feel they are victims, that the government needs to take care of them, and that they are entitled to housing, you name it. part of that 47 percent said. what would you do about that? do you think that should change? and what do you think, generall
. it is not a good feeling. the defense minister says that when it comes to military spending, the iron dome defense system, remember this is not the first time that egyptians ransacked an embassy. they ransacked the israeli embassy eight months ago. this is the second time in one year that in egypt embassy is fair game. the prime minister called obama immediately and obama got on of holland -- the phone and said, do something about this. protect these people. she will routinely say that this is the best president in american history in terms of support for israel. in terms of military spending, we have never got more support. but if you ask people on the street, they have a very different reading of the feelings of obama to israel. >> i had taken the position up until recently that israel should not be an issue in the race because the parties are both supportive of israel. it should relate to the domestic issues where there is clear cleavage between the two. that has been my position. i don't think that anyone can rightly say that president obama is the best president. i think reagan was. i think s
grants. one is in the same-sex marriage cases, the defense of marriage cases and the proposition 8 cases and the other is in the voting rights cases. both of these are likely to be taken on by the courts. we don't know how they will play out because they have not to grant uncertainty in these cases yet. i think they also share some interesting aspects, and those on the relationship between the state and a federal government. first, to turn to the defense of marriage act and proposition 8 cases -- i will talk about doma cases for it. first, for some history on doma, it was passed in 1996 and has two main sections from only one is really at issue in section 2 is about trying to protect states from being forced to recognized marriage in other states. the section that deals with the defense of marriage for federal purposes, federal law, federal taxes, a whole host of bedroll laws. it says, for the purpose of federal law, the word marriage means of a legal union between one man and one woman, husband and wife, and spouse refers only to a person of the opposite sex. that is the section of the
, and reintegrate the revolutionaries in the defense and interior ministries, as well as other state institutions. before the first time since independence, we have political parties in the political arena there is freedom of expression in the press. there is unconditional freedom to demonstrate, the freedom of association, freedom to set up several institutions, unions as well as political and social, intellectual organizations without any limitations. this has led to a free dialogue and participation by all peoples in all parts of the world. mr. president, the time of the previous regime for more than four decades saw fragrant -- flagrant violations of human rights, torture, detention without trial, expeditionary killing, humiliation of citizens, mistreatment. the when the revolution erupted on 17 february through peaceful demonstrations, the previous regime faced them down with bullets and oppression in a grave violation of international humanitarian law and human rights law. hence the human rights council suspended libya's membership in said council. and set up an international fact-finding c
and loose with the truth when makes claims in defense of his own record and making allegations about mitt romney, his record and the way he has run his campaign. bill: give me an example. what has he said in a battle ground state or what as he said on a tv ad that has been disapproved? >> he made a claim that got four pinnochios from "the washington post" yesterday that 90% of the debt was run up under his predecessor. the david letterman interview that president obama gave last week on the debt and deficits was a veritable panoply of things that were at least misleading, and often just flat-out untrue. i think the president didn't get called on it. there were many more misleading statements in the 10 minute interview that president obama gave david letterman than anything in paul ryan's speech which as we saw led to the this explosion of fact-checking. bill: don't all politicians kind of take the truth and bend it a little bit, stretch it out for their own advantage? >> yes. that is an understatement. they do it all the time. everybody on all sides does it. and i think, you know, to a ce

to president obama's defense. >> i want to tell you how proud i am to stand shoulder to shoulder with a guy who has done more for israel physical security than any president of eight i served with. >> that came the day that the president was on the phone with netanyahu who is in the united states instead of meeting him in person. a white house statement said they are in full agreement of a shared goal to prevent iran obtaining a nuclear weapon, it stopped short of agreal to the red line that he demanded thursday. >> where should a red line be drawn? right here. before, before iran completes a second stage of nuclear enrichment. >> romney pressured the president scheduling his own call today with netanyahu. >> the national security threat is iran with nuclear capability. we spoke about the assessment of where the red line ought to be drawn. >> romney took the opening to hamer a president who has seen drop on foreign policy. the problem is bigger on the questioning of the handling of libya with 39% of the public approving, 43% disapproving and 17% unsure. >> i'm supposed to be eye candy here. >>
administration officials and congressional democrats are coming to rice's defense, saying she went on the sunday talk shows and gave the "best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time." national security council spokesman tommy vitt just-released statement saying rice has done extraordinary work at the united nations and for the american people. the president appreciates the work she does every day and is looking forward to her continued work. congressman king is joining us now with his thoughts on all this. congressman king, thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you. >> do you believe that ambassador rice is part of a deliberate cover-up to mislead the public on the events surrounding the attack in banghazi? >> ambassador rice was deliberate misleading the american people or showed a lack of knowledge and sophistication she shouldn't hold that position anymore. the administration has misinformed the american people, misinformed the world, and she was their spokeswoman, our representative to the world in terms of explaining what happened. virtually every
. >>shepard: you listen carefully to their message and it sounds like the folks lean on defense and foreign policy and they have been going after the president and his team regarding the attack at the embassy. >>guest: absolutely. if you look at the new "washington post" poll, obama is leading on almost every issue. romney only leads on handling the deficit but the two are split on the economy. obama is leading on medicare, health care. people find his international policies doing a little bit better, as well. the romney campaign is trying to cut into the margins and what has been obama's strength, to bring that down ahead of the debate on wednesday which will focus on domestic policy which is interesting that romney is going after foreign policy this week. >>shepard: i found it interesting, as well, but based on what has happened the last couple of weeks, i guess governor romney and his team think we have an opportunity here, why not seize it? >>guest: absolutely. we saw the op-ed today from romney. that's a point of weakness for obama at this point. so the romney campaign will go after th
